Coming season
Miss Rugby 10 August, 2019 11:09
I know the season hasn't started yet but how do people feel its going to go this year.
I have to admit I feel a little worried although I hope I am wrong. Having looked around the other clubs forums and seen some of the signings I feel Bedford is going to be left behind.
I hope it isn't the case but maybe the club need to seriously think about the future.

I thought we finished third the last two seasons.

9 days away from Cambridge friendly, hoping more signings are announced in the next week.

So far, feel we have the quality the challenge all teams, but very concerned by low squad number. Yes, we're no Yorkshire Carnegie trying to assemble a whole squad, but we do really need another prop, second/back row and utility back as a minimum, preferably a prop with some Championship-level experience too.

Having said that, I more or less agree with TryBlues, would still expect top half more than bottom half finish. Or at least, mid-table. I do feel at the moment though, that to achieve third place or even top 4 again is unlikely. Coventry will be much stronger and Pirates I think might even push Ealing for second.

Maybe a host of signings this week will change my mind!

Very concerned over the squad size as it stands at the moment, nothing for weeks....

We have another who plays centre who used to be a backrower.

We are looking for a prop who can scrum both sides.

Trinder isn't coming and is off to one of the big spenders of the division who play in Blue and White.

Once the World Cup is over we will pick up some DRs to pad out the squad.
